A 20-year-old man has been arrested on on suspicion of assault after a man was kicked to the floor and stamped on in Sale at the weekend.
The 59 year old was walking along Urban Road around 8.45am on Saturday when he was approached by two men who started talking to him.
The duo then punched and kicked the victim to the floor before stamping on his head and fleeing on foot.
The 59-year-old man was taken to hospital with injuries to his head and shoulder. He remains in hospital for treatment and is in a stable condition.
Officers are continuing to appeal for information on the attack.
